Every year, on the day before the AIA National Convention, we bring together Reed Construction Data, the AIA and Hanley Wood, leading manufacturers, generous sponsors and volunteers from across the U.S. for a project that helps the host community.
AEC Cares started in 2011 with projectNOLA, where we helped rebuild five houses that had been devastated by Hurricane Katrina. In 2012, we worked with Sasha Bruce Youthwork and restored a dilapidated, abandoned building in Washington, D.C., that is now home for underprivileged young people working hard to stay in school and gain skills for their futures. 2013's was about rennovating a homeless shlter for the men and women of Denver. 2014 was all about children and making sure they have the best possible start in life. We rennovated a former public school for underpriviledged children 6 weeks to 5 years.
